Double drivers by DragonWolfACe Double drivers by DragonWolfACe
Union Pacific 4-6-6-4 Challenger storms across a crossing as steam escapes from the cyliders. This is one sweet piece of machinery.

Check out those side rods! Nice and shiny and polished...oh...and orginial! Its nice to know something nearly 70 years old can look that good. I even got to touch them and I didnt have any dirt on my finger at all.

This was taken a few minutes prior.

when this comes along, I hear the song from the last level of the first stage of "World of Goo" or "They see me rollin'"

I recall seeing this locomotive in action. It was as big as a house!
